I picked up some 4G disks with drive sleds for around $30 a while ago.
But a 1G drive will hold the OS and a full src and build area for SPARC.
Granted, I don't have X11 on it.
At one point, I had a RAID box that did around 70MB/s (real us,
not dd use) attached and built at, basically, RAMDisk speed. And
it showed just how painful the 70MHz chip was. (It built a kernel
about as fast as an Athlon 2400 built a whole OS).
I've bought a *little* room by removing ports and /usr/share/man/,
but man pages (1) come back and (2) aren't THAT huge.
Building over NFS is doable (for the patient - a 100mb link helps
over the default 10mb card in those). I keep obj/ local and mount
src/ over NFS.
How do you have the system setup without enough room? 424MB drive?
enormous root and swap and no /usr|/home space?
pony up a "df -h" for us.
